Speaker Biography:
Leigh and Leslie Keno have been actively involved in the field of American antiques since childhood. The twin brothers accompanied their antique dealer parents to fairs and kept a personal diary of transactions. Even at the age of 12, they considered themselves to be antique dealers and appraisers. These antiques experts have appeared on the PBS series “Antiques Roadshow” and WGBH’s “Find!.” The Kenos are authors of “Hidden Treasures: Searching for Masterpieces of American Furniture.”
